Ericsson sacks 160 Nigerians, replaces them with Indians

01 December 2016, 11:36

Abuja - Ericsson Nigeria has relieved 160 Nigerians of their duties in the company while replacing them with Indians according to Punch.

55 full-time employees were affected by the recent development which is expected to take effect from Sunday, November 4.

Some workers were laid off in July while foreign workers had been recruited to replace the disengaged workers.

Also, knowledge transfer by Nigerian engineers to the new workers was ongoing in the company’s office in India.

Sources revealed that some Indians were brought to Nigeria in 2015 to study the telecommunication management so as to be able to run it when the Nigerians have been disengaged according to Naij.

One of the affected workers said that the company was offering the jobs, which involved the monitoring of MTN masts and networks in the country, to Indians at reduced costs.

The workers expressed fears that this would be a continuous trend in the telecommunications industry if it was not addressed by the government.
